I think it just generally needs to applauded that POCs are being cast, despite them not being the same ethnicity as the character. But on the finer points, it does create tension, especially with the case of Zhang Ziyi in Memoirs of a Geisha given the history between China and Japan. As a Chinese person who has been exposed to the tension between the two countries, I completely understand why some Japanese people were upset over the casting, especially since geishas play such an integral role in Japanese culture. But, if you were viewing the film as a person who isn’t Asian and can’t really differentiate between the physical features pertaining to different parts of Asia, it really just makes no difference whether the actress is Japanese or Chinese or even Korean. It all depends on how faithful the director wants to be. For some, it’s good enough to cast someone who looks the part. Others may want to be as accurate as possible. I mean, if you think about it, it’s not uncommon for Caucasians to play roles outside of their own ethnicity. Adelaide Kane is Australian and she plays Mary Queen of Scots. That just goes to show that it doesn’t really matter in most cases. Obviously sometimes it will create problems on a smaller scale (like the case with Memoirs of a Geisha), but given Hollywood’s history of whitewashing, I think we just need to be happy that they’re casting outside of the box now.
It’s fine if you use it (:
I put it on hold for my course readings.
I didn’t catch the last fifteen minutes of the show cause my livestream kept stopping so I have no idea what you’re talking about but there was a shot of him in the mid-season trailer last week so he’s definitely not dead.
Just because the majority of tumblr loves it doesn’t mean everyone else thinks it’s deserving of the Oscar

I somehow really doubt that he’d be allowed to share that kind of thing, though.
No idea. Maybe this weekend, maybe not. I started Gryffindor a few days ago but stopped working on it because I had to catch up on school work. If I finish my essay early, I’ll continue working on Gryffindor.
No lol it was taken with my phone (iphone 5) but like I’m really surprised that it looks so HQ because my phone selfies usually aren’t super great quality lol
